Quote from P5YcHoM4N :Amber means prepare to stop, what if I'm not prepared to stop?

IIRC the highway code says you should be preparing for lights to change while you approach :P but my point was not with someone going through as it goes Amber, i know you have to at times but when its been Amber for 5 seconds and 3 cars have already gone through and you still steam through, that's when I have a problem with it.

On the subject of risk - I've noticed lately that the majority of people on the road have no problems with completely cutting corners and most will squeeze through a "amber turning red" light, even if it means right-turners getting stuck in the middle of the road.

Maybe its just my area but I can guarantee that either on my drive to or from work I will encounter at least one person on my side of the road (and not because they're going round a car) and most of the time they are the "low-risk" group - middle-aged men and women.

There's a junction on my journey to work where right-turners have to move forward or they block the road for people going straight on. A fair amount of traffic flows through the junction and so people don't usually get a chance to turn until the lights start changing again. This doesn't stop at least a couple of cars still going through when the lights go amber. Once again, the majority of these are the "low risk" group.

The statistics may say I'm more likely to get into an accident than them and, granted, I do drive faster than average (as in carrying speed, not outright speed) but I stick to my lane, I don't stick to someone's bumper if they're going slower than me, I don't pull out right in front of people, I don't go around the outside of queuing traffic, I don't race traffic lights, all these things I see regularly from the people statistically less likely to have an accident.

Ah well, its what you have to pay to drive. I'll just keep going and eventually I'll get prices easier on the wallet.

Quote from S14 DRIFT :All of which are combined MPG (and when they were new, not when there's 80,000 miles of wear and abuse under their wheels) and around town they would get 35 tops, where you can buy all manner of larger engined cars (ahem Focus) which do more.

If you want economy, buy a diesel.

Or a bicycle.

My mum's punto (a 1.2, 10 years old, 60k miles) used to get 42mpg-ish with only town driving and I had 65mpg on a run to Birmingham and back once. My Corsa (1.7 cdti, 3 years old, 55k miles) does 40ish with about an 80/20 split town/motorway driving and 48 at a push on a long motorway journey.

The engine in mine is known to be complete shite for MPG but point is, don't knock an old 1.2, they're a hell of a lot lighter than newer cars (and diesels).

Quote from The General Lee :At a place I worked at, there was a "Phantom shitter" who would shit, wipe but not flush. We all had a poll going on who it was. The guy I had my money on left but the lack of flushing continued. I lost.

We have a phantom shitter, except he doesn't often wipe. Oh and he left a little present on the floor a couple of weeks ago. I mean seriously, you just don't expect to stumble upon that in an office building

Quote from mrodgers :I saw in a thread a long time ago, someone posted a picture of potato chips. It was a different name, but the logo and bag graphics design was exactly the same as Lay's chips..

Ya mean these? http://walkers.corpex.com/CR15p5/walkpix/prodpix/cri_2pk.jpg

M&Ms are better than Smarties IMO but for general chocolate you just can't beat a Yorkie (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wi ... .JPG/800px-Yorkie_bar.JPG)

Done about 42 hours twice now, once was on a journey to France, I couldn't sleep on the coach and when we got there the excitement of getting there kept me awake. The other time was the summer just gone, I was just talking with friends all night and just didn't bother going to sleep since I had to go out that day...

The team was starting to shape up from day one

We've had a solid team since about April now. We've had our ups and downs but we're still going. I'm quite proud of our little herd here

Quote from Psymonhilly :was this an april fools race or something??
random people joining during qualify and mid race joining,
not to mention the chatting even tho admins tell them not to.
i would have thought since we been practicing for the last month that something like this should not have happened.

I reversed into your path in that last race, I'm sorry. My team-mates were telling me to reverse on teamspeak so I didn't think to check, sorry mate.
